We all know the importance of SEO for our websites or blog and we do take care of it, at the same time all our competitors also know these basic SEO things, they are also taking care of it to compete with you.

As I said before a lot of factors influences to increase domain authority, if we focus on some activities which other bloggers are not doing, and  start doing those activities then getting high rankings, reputation is not a hard one.

All these activities will improve the chances of getting high rank in search engines, still it depends on our competitor’s strength, if we have less competition, it takes less time, and if we have larger competition then it takes longer.

Making Videos On Each Post To Increase Domain Authority

How many bloggers around the world are making videos for all their posts?

Making a 3 to 4 minutes video to describe a summary of your post article will bring lot of attention on internet, if you rehearse yourself to host a video on your article then we can see lot of difference on our blog traffic, it is a proven method to get traffic, 99% of the bloggers are not utilizing this opportunity, even me.

I don’t have a pleasing personality and confidence to speak on video; still I am rehearsing myself on test videos to host one, once I become perfect on my accent and confidence definitely I will utilize this opportunity.

If you notice the activity of Mr. Amit Agarwal on his recent article you will get an idea, why he is doing and hosting videos on YouTube.

Writing Long (more than 1500 words) Articles

Most of the bloggers write articles between 500 to 800 words, very low percentage of people write articles between 1000 to 1500 words, very little number of people writes more than 1500 words article on their blog.

Increasing words with unnecessary information will not add any value to your content, giving more examples, more case studies, documented data references, analysis data, and comparisons information all these things add value to your content.

If we make of habit of writing more than 1500 words article on each post, then it will attract a number of readers and increases session duration time on our blog.

    Some good advice here – I like the one about adding vids *to* blog posts. That’s an interesting spin. Ironically, just yesterday, I thought of doing a brief summary video at the beginning of a post, then letting the article serve as full details on the topic. :} For now though, I’m beginning to create vids *out of* my posts and submit them as content to relevant places. Anyway, will certainly RT this one, Siddaiah!

    • H.T.Major,
      Thank you for your appreciation, summary videos really help articles to bring traffic to your blog.

  • Good points Sid.

    I liked the one about videos. In my niche (personal tech reviews), videos are paramount. Although I am OK with generating small clippings or slideshows, I am shy and reluctant to go full out and produce quality videos which are a few minutes long. Something I need to work on in the 2015.

    This is a good article with some solid advice. Thanks for sharing.
